Angry Serena Shocker? Withdraws from Open Gaz

Serena Withdraws from Gaz de France

2/6/04 6:22 PM


More disappointing news for fans of Serena as she announced today that she will not compete in the Gaz de France, scheduled to begin on Monday, February 9, 2004.

"I am continuing to train, and I feel that Iím just about where I want to be. My knee feels great and I look forward to coming back in championship form," said Serena upon making her decision.

Tennis fans eagerly await the next event on Serena's schedule - the Qatar Total Open the week of March 1, 2004.

She will be back in Miami along with Monica. Yay!

Well, it's disappointing as a fan on one hand because I don't get to see her in action now, but in the long run it'll be worth it. I want her at her best and in great form to be truly competitive.

No one should be surprised. I found it weird that she would be able to show up for Paris, but couldn't make a go of it in Australia. This was to be expected.

Er... so she's fine, the knee is fine and she's where she wants to be. I take it that she just can't be arsed with coming to Paris, then?

She stated she's just about where she wants to be. Not quite there yet.
